DETROIT – The public is invited to an open house Thursday to learn more about six alternative construction designs for I-375 in downtown Detroit.

The project would heavily impact those driving to Ford Field, Greektown and the Renaissance Center.

There are also two designs created for the Interstate 75/I-375 interchange, portions of Gratiot Avenue and the Gratiot Connector, and Jefferson Avenue between Washington Boulevard and Joseph Campau.

The new designs are based on community input along with technical data from the study.

The open house will run from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.  at Detroit Eastern Market's Shed 5, 2934 Russell Street. Presentations will run every two hours between that time period.
